Tasting Australia 2024

Australia’s esteemed culinary festival, Tasting Australia, is set to tantalise taste buds once again in 2024. Slated for 3 – 12 May, the festival returns with an expansive lineup of over 150 events, showcasing the rich culinary tapestry of South Australia.

This year’s edition introduces exciting innovations, including a revamped Town Square and unique Tasting Australia Airlines trips to the Eyre Peninsula and the Limestone Coast. A standout feature is the direct charter plane from Melbourne to Naracoorte, elevating the festival experience by directly connecting visitors to South Australia’s regional gems.

The 2024 program is brimming with immersive events. From a sailing adventure along Kangaroo Island’s coast to a unique collaboration dinner at Kiin and a wine tasting coupled with a movie screening, the festival promises diverse and enriching experiences.

Some other highlights for the 2024 festival include:

  • Dining Galleries: These new spaces in Town Square are part restaurant, part art showcase and will feature the best and brightest in national hospitality across lunch and dinner events. Each unique gallery can transform from a party like Fiesta celebrating Cinco de Mayo with Claudette Zepeda, Daniella Guevara Munoz, Duncan Welgemoed and Jess Spiby to an intimate kaiseki style Sushi Dreams dinner with Hansol Lee, Mug Chen and Chia Wu. Works by South Australian artists Dana Kinter, Alexandra Bellas, Billie Justice Thomson and Gabriel Stengle will feature in these exciting new spaces.
  • Tasting Australia Airlines: Choose to fly direct to the heart of South Australia’s ancient Limestone Coast from either Adelaide or Melbourne for an overnight adventure featuring Mark Best, Tony Carroll, Kirby Shearing, Clare Falzon and Paul Stone. Alternatively, set off for a day trip to the pristine Eyre Peninsula with Darren Robertson, Shannon Flemming, Jo Barrett and Fabian Lehmann. Venture further, discovering these beautiful regions alongside leading chefs inspired by their produce.
  • Tasting Australia by Train: Melbourne – Adelaide: Embark on a journey from Melbourne – Adelaide with Journey Beyond exclusively for Tasting Australia, offering a 10-hour day trip featuring curated experiences with Cheong Liew, Asma Khan and Jae Bang onboard The Ghan’s dining and bar carriages.
  • MAKE: These immersive and hands on sessions will add finesse to your cooking skills. Held in a Town Square Dining Gallery and led by chefs and artisans, each will cover a simple skill on the path to professional results. Roll pastry with Julia Busuttil Nishimura, make sausages with Duncan Welgemoed or try your hand at ceramics with the team from Jam Factory.
  • Tasting Tables: Settle in for a series of intimate tastings hosted across beloved Adelaide hospitality venues. Each features a guest presenter and a rare set of beverages. Talk, taste and share special bottles in a setting that allows you to discover the people and places that shaped them.

Event tickets are now available at tastingaustralia.com.au. Tasting Australia presented by RAA Travel runs for 10 days from Friday 3 – Sunday 12 May 2024 across Adelaide and regional South Australia.
